hi guys. let's get to the point. i'm working on a few authority sites, i write my articles myself, and i normally outsource my off page seo. that way i can just focus on writing good marketing content and on page seo and leave the backlinking stuff to the experts. here's the question: let's say i have an article targeting a medium comp keyword. the keyword has like 5000 exact local searches/month and i want to make sure it's good quality i go about writing the article and make it as useful as i can with the reader in mind. no thoughts to seo at all. when i'm done this is what i end up with: article length = 900+ words main keyword appears 5 times a variation of the main keyword appears 1 time if we count the variation as the main keyword i end up with 6/900*100=0.66% i do have other variations of the main niche keyword in general in the article but as for the keyword that i'm actually targeting, it seems rather low. i've published the article, i've just started backlinking to it after letting it age for a while. should i modify it to get it up to 1% at least? my gut says to just let it be in favour of the readers but some expert opinions would really put my mind at ease. thanks for your help.
